Abstract:

The estimates of genotypic correlation coefficients in general were higher than their corresponding phenotypic correlation coefficients indicating strong inherent association among the traits. The seed yield per plant had significant and positive association with number of primary branches plant-1, number of secondary branches plant-1, number of pods plant-1, number of seeds plant-1, biological yield plant-1, seed yield (kg/ha) harvest index and 100-seed weight at both genotypic as well as phenotypic levels. Characters viz., pollen fertility%, biological yield plant-1, harvest index, number of secondary branches plant-1 and dal recovery% exerted high direct effects on seed yield. 100-seed weight and pods plant-1 also contributed indirectly towards seed yield per plant through most of the characters. Thus, based on the present study number of primary branches plant-1, number of secondary branches plant-1, number of pods plant-1, number of seeds plant-1, biological yield plant-1, seed yield (kg/ha) harvest index and 100-seed weight were emerged as the most important components of seed yield.
